Rescue Me ID: 17-05-15-00364Buddy (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buddy is an extremely friendly and well behaved dog. Unlike your typical Akita/German Shepherd, he is great with children! He is very loving. He is crated at night and even likes to lie in his crate sometimes during the day. You say, 'go to bed Buddy' and he goes... I've left him in my house all day and he doesn't destroy or chew or mess up anything. He sits patiently before you feed him, but he does love to eat. He weighs about 40-45 lbs. Very healthy, shiny coat. Again, he is so nice and makes an awesome watch dog. His bark is intimidating, though he doesn't bark a lot. Loves to run, so it would be great to have him adopted by ... (Read More)someone with some land and/or someone who wants to go on long walks with him daily. He is a great companion. I am watching him for my son and his wife, who just had a baby, and they are moving, so we need to find a good home for Buddy. I travel too often and just want him to find a great family or companion. He's awesome! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-28-00473Simba (female)

Akita    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Purebred female Akita 5.5 mos old (born 12/2/16) . Currently 54 lbs and very stocky and healthy. We are in Akron, oh. She has beautiful coloring and a calm sweet disposition and very playful and inquisitive. I'd like to find a home with several children as she adores kids. She is more dominant with other dogs and should be only dog in household( unless supervised with another thick neck large breed male only. As a puppy she already doesn't like some dogs( wirey/too playful Etc). She Needs a good home where she will not be alone (she's a pack animal)and people are almost always home to play with her unless she is walked a lot and played with ... (Read More)before and after work and crated as she's in her teething stage. She really loves small kids and people who take the time to play with her and praise her!!!! She needs o be taken out every 3-4 hours for number one and holds number 2 - and goes 2-3 times a day ( number two) She sleeps through the night Up to 9 hrs then wants outside as soon as she gets up. She could benefit with social training and obedience training (since she may grow up to be 100 lbs) and lots of walks and socializing at dog parks. She's a great dog and it saddens me to post this. It's more important for me to find a good forever home with a large grassy 6 or 9 foot secured fenced in yard for her. She's adorable and sweet and deserves the best happiest most positive environment. I have more pics. Feel free to email me if you are serious about adopting her. I do not want her to be adopted out to be used as sole protection guarding family or an animal and/or left outside I want her to be in a loving home where she is indoors most of the time and has a secured very tall fenced in yard where she can play with supervision. I don't want her roaming anywhere I don't want her off leash in a neighborhood as she can get hurt or can hurt small animals/dogs/etc. It takes a very responsible pet owner to own an akita. Please answer at least some of the following questions to show you are serious about adopting her: Have you had an Akita before? For how long? What happened to them? Do you have/have you had other dogs? What happens to them? Do you have references from a veteranarian That has seen all your dogs regularly? Who will be feeding the puppy? Training the puppy? Spending time with the puppy? And for how long a day? Do you have a secured 6 or 9 foot fenced in yard? Will she be indoors or outdoors? How do you plan to train her? What are your intentions for her? What will you do if you cannot keep her? I hope you don't mind me asking these questions. I ask these questions because I need to know that I will find Simba a loving positive forever home with several children and loving responsible parents. She will be spayed at my vet before going to her new home. She's a good girl and deserves a loving happy home where she is treated like your loving child. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-01-00236Pengyi (female)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

    PengYi, if I could keep you, I would! Ok, to begin, the picture you see is not an Akita, but RescueMe required me to select a breed. PengYi, actually is a mutt. I rescued this loving and intuitive dog when she was only 3 months old. She is from Taiwan, (I was living there for 5 years) so I don't know her breed. I am looking for somebody who wil love this amazing dog. PengYi now almost seven years old, she is healthy and all her shots are up to date and she has no heart worms (never has). I will be going back overseas, first to Africa and then to Taiwan (my Lord willing). Taiwan's quarantine process really messes with a pet's psychology, ... (Read More)also I just don't have the money to transport her back and forth. So the best thing to do for this affectionate best friend is to find someone who will love her and enjoy all the blessings of having an incredible partner by his/her side. Around other dogs: Pengyi, when meeting a dog for the first time goes through the 'it's my territory' barking phase. She and the other dog will sniff each other for a few minutes and inevitably PengYi will start snapping and barking. From my experience, the second time she meets that same dog, PengYi after the sniffing routine is pretty normal and with a passive interest, just leaves the other dog alone. Around children: I used to bring PengYi to school with me all the time in Taiwan! When kids petted her softly on the her head, she would sit there and enjoy the love. When the children would tease and chase her, she would show her frutstration by running after them and barking at them. These kids loved it!!! I would say that if a child knows how to respect PengYi then she shows the same respect. PengYi isn't a biter, she is however a growler and barker. The few times I've seen her 'snap' at somebody is when she feels threaten (i.e. pick her up by areas that cause her much pain). There was a time when she felt someone was going to sit on her and she instinctively snapped back (growl, quick litter bites). She not an aggressive dog. Barking: PengYi will bark when someone is around the house or knocks/ring door bell. If she knows the person then she quiets down pretty quickly after connecting with him/her. There is training that can be done on her to not bark, but I haven't pursued it. Her territorial and protective nature might come in handy! A warning when someone is around your home might be a better deterrent then motion lights. It's sure quicker in response time. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Ohio
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Ohio if they match your IifestyIe. The Akita Inu, or Japanese Akita, is a large Spitz-type breed of dog. Akitas are intelligent, companionable animals and make excellent guard dogs. Akitas are willful and need firm training. Akitas are protective of children in their own families, but may be aggressive toward outsiders and should be supervised with small kids. Akitas may bite if provoked; they need to be treated with gentleness and respect. Akitas can live in an apartment but do need sufficient exercise; they do best with a large yard.
